Deadline reports that 20th Century Fox is still working on a spin-off series to CBS’ How I Met Your Mother, which would be called How I Met Your Dad. It was originally set to be written by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, the executive producers of This Is Us. However, that show became very popular and the two were promoted to co-showrunners with creator Dan Fogelman for the second season. The studio first tried a spin-off during the final season of the original show. It’s possible the new spin-off could be prepared for as soon as next season.

Fox Chairman Dana Walden said none of the previous ideas will be carried over into the new attempt. He said: “The studio will try (developing a spinoff) with different writers. They will be starting from scratch. It’s one that’s been slowly cooked. If it’s the right idea the right execution, we’ll take that.
